Chris Corning has been unstoppable this year and capped off the impressive season with a solid win at Slopestyle during the last stop of the FIS World Cup. After snagging the Silver in the Big Air event and bronze in Slopestyle at the World Championships in Sierra Nevada recently, Chris kept it going and was able to put together a winning run for the Gold in the Czech Republic.

Chris' run included a half cab 50-50 backside 3 out, a backside rodeo 7 nosegrab, a frontside 180 switch 50 switch back 3 out, a 270 board 450 out, and a backside triple cork 1440 melon to cap it all off! The riding from this 17 year old out of Silverthorne has impressed riders and spectators from all over the world, and we couldn't be happier to see him crushing. Congrats homie, keep it up and we're definitely stoked to see what's in store next year. 

It was announced after this final stop that the FIS Overall Slopestyle award went to Red Gerard for a really solid season. Yet another Summit County young buck killing it! Congrats Red!
